Four Years Ago
Day 2


The party is over at 109 comments.

We'll be back later today to announce the winner!


Yes, I'm very late today. I'm terribly sorry I took my hubby, aka Mr Daze to breakfast this morning. :-) It's very important to keep him happy - he works very hard to keep me happy!
*

Here we are ready to party again. WooHoo!! Thank you for playing yesterday - I enjoyed reading your guesses. :-)

It's been super hot this week here on the Surface of the Sun - 109 degrees - ugh! I've been searching for refreshing, thirst quenching drinks. There's been ice cold bottled water, ice cold caffeine free diet coke and ice cold sweet tea but one of my favorite refreshing drinks can be found at The Red Robin - it's called Freckled Lemonade aka Strawberry Lemonade. Lemonade with chunks of strawberries and crushed ice - YUM!!! Serious YUM!
*

So, to quench your thirst for some fun fabrics today's prize is called Strawberry Lemonade by Me & My Sister Designs for Moda - there are 39 pieces ( cut approx 10" x 18") + a panel.
*

Let me toss your name in the proverbial hat by telling me what you would do with these cuties if you won. See easy peasy - no guessing game this time. LOL

I'm looking forward to your comments about this sweet prints.
*
Reminder - I'll announce the winners of all four prizes on Tuesday, June 15th.

*
See you tomorrow for Day #3, Game #3 & Prize #3
*
In Friendship!

Honestly? And I'm NOT just saying this to suck up either...

I's make a second of you "Between Friends" quilts! The fabric would be perfect!

Quilt Hollow said...

Oh gosh...I spy another "someday" grandbaby quilt that would be awesome in these fun colors!!

I have a little niece who would love a quilt made out of these pretty prints!!

Terry said...

Good thing to keep hubby happy! LOL These fabrics are beautiful! I'd make a quilt for my daughter with them (I still owe her one)! Thanks for the giveaway! :0)

DianeM said...

Those fabrics are so colorful & cheery....I'm loving all the pinwheel quilts i've seen in blogland lately so maybe something with pinwheels or whirlygigs :)
Smiles, DianeM :)

Mona said...

I want to make a sommerquilt to my new arbour..The fabrics are beatiful.

Susan said...

These fabrics are so cute! I have a multitude - literally - of nieces to choose from to make a sweet little quilt for. Or maybe little purses for all of them?! Or little notebook covers?

Barbara said...

Perfect for a summertime quilted picnic tablecloth - too too pretty fabric !

what a dear husband you have !

sunny said...

Yummy! I would have a hard time giving it up, but I think I would make a quilt for my granddaughter, and if there's any left over, I can envision some placemats for my table!

Carol in E TN said...

Oh, I love the Me and My Sister girls and their fabric. I would make a "happy" quilt that would make me smile with all those happy colors.

Sandy said...

I LOVE this fabric! It works really well as a table topper on the furniture on the deck! Set your ice cold strawberry lemonade glass on it and enjoy!

shannon said...

i've been looking for the perfect fabrics to start a girly applique quilt...those would be perfect!

*fingers crossed*

Edna said...

Gorgeous fabrics!! I'd use them to make a cute girlie quilt for my grand-daughter!

lesthook said...

Like most, a quilt for a little girl,or maybe for the little girl in me! Love the fabrics!

Quiltingdaisy said...

I would make a quilt to cover a wooden picnic table. it would double as a picnic blanket when a table couldn't be found.

Anne Ida said...

Oh, yummmmmmy!!! Those fabrics just shout summer - so how about a picnic quilt (the roll-up type complete with ribbons and rock pockets), a basket ruffle/cover and some napkins?? Oh, I can picture it now - sigh ;o)

call me crazy said...

Cute fabrics! I'd make summery table/picnic items... that is if my DD didn't swipe them straight away for a picnic blanket. :-) Thanks for the fun!

Quilt Nut said...

yum that sounds good.
we just had three baby girls born into our family a few weeks ago, this would make some super cute quilts!

Cara said...

I'm not sure what I'd make but it'd be happy and for at least one little girl!

swooze said...

Well I am in need of a baby girl quilt in July and these would make a wonderful quilt for her.

Patchwork Penguin said...

Oh my... I could see a disappearing 9 -patch baby quilt in all of this. I love the fabrics!!!

Thanks so much for hosting!

Brenda said...

I would make a quilt for my daughter out of this fabric if I win it. Such fun colors.

joan said...

Oh I love the fabric...I din't ahv tot hik twic.. I would make another Blossom Time from the Pam and Nicky Lintott Layer and Jelly Roll

Karen said...

I would make a quilt for my great grand-daughter.

Gale, Ky quilter said...

Beautiful fabric! I would make my granddaughter who's 6th birthday is coming up a cute little quilt and a matching doll quilt. She would love this - pink is her favorite color. I'm definitely doing my quilting grandma duties because I've already got her hooked on chocolate and fabric!

Happy Blogversary!

STRAWBERRY LEMONADE,ISN'T THAT SWEET?
I WANT TO MAKE A BRIGHT QUILTED THROW FOR MY PORCH. THANKS FOR SHARING,LINDA

jldouglas@wispwest.net

Strlady said...

Don't you just love those new FE's precuts? I love them!! sometimes the FQ bundles are just too much and these just fit the bill. I have a cousin that is having a baby Girl in September and I've been looking for the perfect fabric. If I won, I would make that little critter a quilt.

I think I'm needing a trip to Red Robin!

Cindy said...

I would put these fabrics with the lonely charm pack of this line that I have to make a Schnibbles to brighten our kitchen nook. Then I could also have enough to do make matching placemats. How cute would does that sound?

Carol said...

I think it needs a pattern that uses large bits of fabric since some of the fabrics are larger prints - maybe some snowball blocks and nine patches.

Amy said...

This would make a cute baby quilt and a fun table runner.

Ceamz said...

I would make a coin baby quilt for a friend expecting baby #8 : )

Linda said...

Lets see, the perfect quilt pattern mmmm, I would design my own.

Trish said...

I would use it to make the Buggy Barn posey quilt. The bright happy colors would be just perfect!

Kim West said...

I think I would make a cute wall hanging for my daughter's bedroom. These are all her favorite colors. She is 6 and the last quilt I made for her hasn't been quilted yet, because it is a bed quilt and she takes markers to bed at night. If I made her a wall quilt, it would be something she could put on her wall and I wouldn't have to fear her falling asleep with a marker in her bed.

paulette said...

If I won this delightful bundle I think I would make the BIG Between Friends quilt...Wouldn't it be cute? :') Take care and thanks for the chance!!
Paulette

Dresden Quilter said...

Definitely a quilt for a sweet little girl. I am really liking Kaaren's suggestions. I also thought about doing the hourglass block with them.

Susan said...

A quilt or a big market bag. Hubby and I got out of the valley today and headed up to Payson.

Sue said...

Love the fabric, I would make a quilt for my sweet 2 year old grand daughter. Her mummy and daddy are building their first home and it would look lovely in her first grown up bedroom

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

Gorgeous fabrics Darlene.....add some white fabric and maybe do whirly gigs...such lovely bright fabrics...

Sue said...

Monica said...

Ooooo...they'd make an awesome pinwheel quilt triangles...or a diamonds quilt maybe. So many choices!

Sarah Craig said...

I'd make a quilt for my adorable granddaughter - I'd tell you what pattern but sadly I'm separated from my cross-stitch magazines at the moment by about 900 miles!!! Does that get me a sympathy vote? ;-)

Elaine Adair said...

mmm - I think a summery Row quilt would be fun. Naturally, a row of flowers, row of quirky houses, maybe some appliqued critters, sunshines, trees, summer veggies, a row of kids holding hands, and ??? ... that is, if I won them. 8-)))

Wendy said...

I love it Strawberry Lemonade quilt would be prefect for the Schnibbles patterns. I just got my book in the mail yesterday. I was very excited to see your name in there. I can tell my friends that you are also my "friend". Fun giveaway.

Nancy said...

that would make a wonderful charity quilt for Shriners Hospital..

MN2NM said...

These would be great in a half-square triangle pattern. I've been admiring the Lady of the Lake pattern. Thanks for the chance!

Anita in Florida said...

Oh those fun fabrics would look great in a table topper and/or placemats and napkins too!

Michelle said...

What a fun line! I don't have any girls in our family but I would have to find a pattern to make a quilt. I would donate it to a charity that I've been with for the past 11 years - Log-A-Load for Kids. The logging community in our county raise money for the Arkansas Children Hospital.

Kathy said...

Beautiful fabric. I would love to make a nice summery kitchen table topper. Thanks for the give-away!

Mary said...

I would most definitely make my very first grandchild, Melanie, who is now three weeks old a quilt. There would be enough to make a dolly quilt and a backpack when she gets a little older. Being a grandma is so much fun!

AnnieO said...

There's a baby gonna be born to my cousin and his wife late this year. These fabrics would make a darling welcome baby quilt. It could be two sided with the panel on the front and some patchwork on the back (or vice versa)! My brother and his family live in Scottsdale so have felt the same as you---so hot already!

Caroline in NH said...

I would have left a guess for yesterday's prize, but I already have one of those magnetic pincushions! (156!)

If I won those fabrics, I would be using them for some of the blocks in Bloomin' Workshop's Flying Geese quilt-a-long (http://tinyurl.com/34b557y) I've collected a few brights for it so far, but they are not my usual fabrics (my usuals being 1930s reproductions & civil war repros).

Thelma said...

I think I would make pinwheels the size of those adorable panels, and alternate to make a throw!

Linda said...

Your summer cooler sounds scrumptious. Lovely fabrics, I think something summery like a picnic quilt or picnic table cloth.

Meghann said...

Adorable fabric...I could so see this as a girl quilt. I have a few nieces then there is always friends with little girls that would love this. Thanks for such a great giveway:)

busymom said...

This would make a perfect quilt for my goddaughter.

Joanna said...

I would use the fabric to make table covers. It is so cheerful that I would want to see it. I would do a runner, a square cover, and as many placemats as I could. Thanks Darlene.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Oh wow I would love to make your pattern with those fabrics for our new house :-)))

Winona said...

Not sure of the pattern I'd use, but it would make a wonderful little girl quilt. I have 3 granddaughters. Winona

Quilter Kathy said...

Well, for a while I would just look at it and admire it, and gloat about it on my blog!
And then I would start making comfort quilts for the pediatric sexual assault centre. The colours are perfect for these quilts!

Laura said...

Hmmm, I particularly like the stripes in this line, so would probably try to pair those with the larger prints in the line in order to showcase those and then work in the other prints where I could. Better yet, I'd find an existing pattern that would work nicely for these prints, like maybe the X-Rated pattern in the Schnibble Times 2 book.

Michelle said...

The fabrics are just what I have been looking for, for a baby quilt I need to make, I'm sure I can hear the fabrics calling my name...

SheilaC said...

these would be perfect in a quilt for my friend!

Thanks for the give away!

SheilaC

Darlene B said...

I think these fabrics would make a cute baby quilt. I'd like to experiment with Texture Magic using these prints! dsb448@att.net

LOVE TO STITCH BEE TREE DESIGNS said...

what fun fabrics, I know 3 little girls who would love something made from these.

Debi said...

If I won those, I would turn them into two quilts for Project Linus. I love Me & My Sisters fabrics.

Pokey said...

Does it count to use it as a pretty stack on a shelf for a wee little time? It's such a sweet stack of colors~!
:-} pokey

Katie Bishop said...

I would make a quilt for my daughter's bed!

kjp37@hotmail.com

cathy said...

I'd make a quilt for the very next grandbaby or great niece or nephew. I can't wait.

kathy said...

I'd use the fabric to make a Schnibbles Quilt!
Kathy

TinaTx said...

Those would make a great summer table topper - for inside or outside on the patio!

soggybottomflats said...

Oh I do love this set bunches! It seriously looks like a disappearing 9 patch to me! Elaine

Piecefulafternoon said...

Oh that would make such a pretty summer quilt for the porch. I love the fresh colors - and now I want to go to Red Robin just to get a drink!

Lynn said...

Honestly I see a quilt as a table cloth for a summer party. Use the extras to make napkins.....

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I would make the perfect quilt to celebrate my daughter moving back to Minnesota. Anything with strawberries reminds me of her..she had a Strawberry Shortcake tricycle when she was little.

Sherry said...

Strawberry Lemonade I am also in love with. The fabric looks like strawberry lemonade also. A quilt for my Great niece she would love this material.

Peggy said...

This would make the perfect fabic for my 4 year old Granddaughter Luca to make her 2nd pieced quilt top. Yes , I said 2nd and she is only 4! Guess I sound like a proud
grandmother and I am!!

The fabric is great!!!

Melzie said...

cute! I'd probably make the little girl in my life a lil sumpin sumpin for her birthday next month, this would match her room colors perfectly :) xoxo mel

Penny said...

I hate guessing games. DH is always saying, "Guess how much (many)..."
I refuse to play. This one is easy. I would make the Merry Go Round quilt by American Jane. It is so much fun.

Crafty Mama said...

Oh my gosh, I have been searching high and low for these fabrics since I used up the last of my charm packs on the charity quilt I made for Margaret's Hope chest last year.
I would use them to make my new little baby cousin a pretty girly quilt ☺

I don't envy your heat there. I'm dreading already this summer. Last year got to be about 112 here in So Cal. Yuck!

Kristy said...

I would have to cut into the panel and use the blocks as centers to a star. I would have an extremely difficult time keeping my daughter from stealing it before it was finished. C.U.T.E :0)

badlandsquilts said...

I have a very overdue baby quilt to make that they would be perfect for~

Jutta(quilt) said...

The fabric would be perfect for a summertime quilt, or even for a baby quilt (which I have to make for next month....),
Jutta

May Britt said...

I know exactly what to do. My niece just gave birth to a princess and old aunti has to make a quilt for the new princess in the family. This looks like fabrics for a new born princess :)

Joyce said...

I'd make a nine-patch but I'm not sure I could give it up. Love that fabric!

Becky said...

Love strawberries and love lemonade. Will have to stop at Red Robin to try their drink.

I just received an e-mail that a friend's daughter just gave birth to their first granddaughter. This has been an especially difficult pregnancy, but after two boys they dearly wanted a girl. Your fabrics from Me and My Sister (love their designs) would make a cheery girl baby quilt.

Thanks for the opportunity! Enjoy your weekend!

Denise in PA said...

How cute those fabrics are!! I think I would make pinwheels. Sweet! Thanks!

Shasta said...

These are beautiful. I've been asked to make bigger quilts - bed sized ones - gulp! - and these would be a nice start to a Between Friends quilt.

Micki said...

I would make a beautiful quilt out of it...I love pinks.
How lovely of you to give it away!
Micki

Yvonne said...

I love this, it would be a nice quilt for my little niece! Greetings from Slovakia :-)

Ruthie said...

Strawbery lemondade sounds yummy! And miss Elizabeth will be in a big girl bed before I know it and so she will be needing a new quilt.

free indeed said...

Nice bundle! I don't normally buy pure colored fabric since I tend to drift towards the muted and toned down colors, so I do need some stash equalizers for when I need to make a baby quilt or something for children. I now have (almost)10 grandbabies all under six...so lots of projects in my future. One thing I'd like to make is an activity book that will help keep them occupied in church...services can be so long for child so I think some of those prints would work on different pages...

StitchinByTheLake said...

Newest great nephew due....October 9! Wouldn't that make a perfect quilt for him? I think so. :) blessings, marlene

Doodlebug Gail said...

I'd make a pinwheel quilt with those gorgeous fabrics and would probably keep the panel for the backing.

Stephanie said...

Happy blog anniversary Darlene. Super cute fabrics. I'd make a girlie quilt, not sure the pattern/block but it would look really cute with pinwheels.

Sweet P said...

What a great contest you are running. Happy blogiversary. If I won the fabric I would make a baby quilt and donate to a local shelter for homeless and pregnant women.

deserae said...

These would make a perfect quilt for my little niece!!!

Quiltersal said...

Oh, Darlene! I love that line! I'd make a darling quilt for my darling granddaughter, Charlotte. She turns 5 years old today.!

Jo said...

I have been looking for fabric for the Between Friends quilt. This just might be it!

Carol said...

I would use the fabric for a Schnibbles Times Two quilt.

Y's creations said...

I have a grand baby due in Nov. I think that is would make a sweet quilt for the new little one.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

I would love them! GRIN. There is a Rosie book called Spice of Life that I would buy and use this fabric. The cover photo is calling me.

Michelle said...

Oh so many ideas come to mind..But at the tope would be a table setting for summer. A table runner, placemats, breadcovers, napkins etc! :)

Silverthimble said...

Send us some of your heat! We are still wearing winter clothes here! We get a day of nice weather followed by a week of cold rainy weather! Yuk! Not much summer here yet!

I would use those yummy fabrics for a quilt in one of Atkinson Designs' books like the Shoebox quilt. I love Terry's designs and this quilt has been on my "to do" list for some time now.

Dawn said...

I would peice those together for a new kichen curtain. I can just see those pretty summer prints brightening up the windows.

Ariane said...

Ah!! These are so cute!!!! I would make a wonderful quilt with these. My daughter would just love them. She would love to make a quilt together using them. Thanks for the chance to win.

Hugs Ariane

Valerie said...

Not sure what pattern I would use, but these fabrics would make a great quilt to display during summer. Thanks for the chance.

Karen said...

I have no idea, it looks like a little girl's quilt, with lots of white. Maybe pinwheels, I love those.
